IZMIR/EDIRNE, Turkey

Police arrested four in western Turkey on Monday over suspected links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the terror group behind the 2016 defeated coup.  

Turkish police arrested two suspected senior FETO members in anti-terror raid in two locations in western Izmir province, according to security sources.

The arrests came after prosecutors in the western Izmir province issued warrants for the suspects accused of being “covert imams” — senior FETO members leading terror group members who infiltrated the armed forces — said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
